    Nurburgring Crash Compilation

    A selection of crashes in 2013 on the Nordschleife part of the track. Mostly cars but some motorcycles. Some of these crashes really hurt...and not just their pride.

    Cars out there at the same time with bikes seems like a recipe for riders getting run over.

    At 7:19, there's cars and at least one bike out there on a track that's looks like it's just been cleared of snow. Can you say cold pavement harms adhesion?

    Did you see the riders that lost their nerve to lean and crashed as a result.

    Riding over your head.

    Same for the car drivers, I can see several that took the wrong action and crashed as a result.

    I think the track opens up for "track days" and for a fee, you can race what you brung. An opportunity for those couch-Ricky-racers!!

    Note to self: Do not test driving nor riding capabilities on open track days to the general public.

    Kinda makes obvious the difference between the wanna-bees and the professional drivers.
